Our longtime dedicated RWH member and Philippines Champion, Elena Agala recently returned from visiting the Philippines on an inspection tour of the clubs we had recently shipped containers to. She visited 8 cities and several rural areas where she received warm welcomes. The people were so thankful for the containers and all the goods in them which had improved their lives and living conditions. She was able to see firsthand that the goods reached the intended recipients thru our policy of shipping containers from Rotarian club to Rotary club.. She also was able to see firsthand how important our work is. She also presented our new DVD at many club functions and also met and presented it to the Canadian Ambassador in Manila. He said he was surprised at the size of our operation and amazed at all the great work we have done. He wished we had been there when our Prime Minister had visited him a couple of weeks previously.
Elena was also asked to be the keynote speaker and show our DVD at several major Rotary meetings throughout the Philippines. She was also honored with a Paul Harris for all her dedicated and hard work for the Philippines.
Great work Elena! We’re all really proud of you and all the hard work and time you put in for RWH and the Philippines.
